I recon...This beach front cafe has the best tasty menu on the island. Had the pleasure of breakfast as staying in the hotel & In between diving & relaxing tasted the burgers & wraps everything was juicy & tasty...highly recommended. Defiantly worth stopping by for the friendly relaxed atmosphere with good quality food.

Thank Mark O

Hi,

Thanks for your review and the nice comments about our menu. A great deal of trial and error has gone into trying to have a balanced menu that ranges across Western, Thai and Burmese food, while keeping the essence of whats good about each of them.

Again thanks for the review and we are very happy you liked the food, please come again next time your on Tao!

Cheers,
Tim

The food was overall quite average for the price.
My food came out wrong (I didn't deviate off the menu), which happens I understand, but my friend's fish was another story. The first time it came out it was still raw. After sending it back the exact same piece of small fish came out not much more cooked but this time soaking in a watery substance. It was completely inedible at which point she had lost her appetite so she sent it back. They then charged us 50% of the dish price, which is poor form!
The only thing this place has going for it is the location.

Thank you for your review and please let me apologize for your sub-standard meal. I cant offer any excuses for this and the only explanation I can give is that perhaps the chef was out and one of the assistants prepared your meal, at a time when none of the Western staff where not there to quality check.

If myself or the manager had have been there, we certainly would have not charged you for the meal (or it would never have come to that as the fish would have been better cooked) and I ask if you do ever eat in our cafe again and something is not right, please tell one of the Western staff

This is no excuse at all and only serves to highlight some of the issues we have in Thailand when it comes to preparing non-Thai food. Still we have systems to prevent this and obviously they failed. I have spoken to the staff and changed the rotation of the chefs to try and ensure this does not happen again.

Once again, I apologize for your sub-standard meal and hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday.

Regards,
Tim

Tucked away on the beach front behind good time adventures is the most mouth watering fresh food all cooked & prepared to order. Definitely a must if your fancy a juicy burger or wrap. As we were staying at the Good time hotel we had a chance to sample the breakfast too...can't recommend them highly enough :)

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the larger restaurants on the island, but still would like to have that see view then this little cafe is a great little spot, tucked behind the good time adventures office. As a break from the usual Thai food, try the Burmese food there!

Thanks for the review and I am glad you liked the wings - they are pretty popular. Next time you will have to take the suicide wing challenge, don't let some Thai, habanero and ghost chili's stop you!!
